My advice would be return it while you still can

As well as no erg mode issue, it also has a sensible base resistance when cycling in Zwift. With the drivo I would often spin out during harder efforts, not the case with the Neo.
I was surprised elite weren’t more helpful in sorting out the problems I was having. The drivo could be really good but unfortunately has far too many issues for me.
Regarding your request:
Please take note that we have sold thousand of Drivo and the people that claim ERG Mode issues are the minority, most of them after some test we have required are caused by the fact that they are doing ERG Mode training in an incorrect mode (or rather they do not keep a steady cadence or they have a very unstable speed during the power change)
After we gave the advice to keep more stable the cadence and the speed most of them have fixed they ERG Mode issue
In fact the response of the trainer on ERG Mode is highly influenced by the way you are pedaling, it ,means if your speed/cadence is not so steady and vary a lot the trainer need more time to adapt to your pedaling, if instead you use a steady and less vary speed/cadence the trainer is able to react in a quick wmode to each target change
We believe so that if you follow our suggestion no changes are needed on your trainer, please take note that before to sold it we have tested the trainer with lots of different riders (from Pro riders to amateur ones) and in all cases the reactivity of the trainer was very good
Anyway if you believe after purchasing the trainer that you have ERG Mode issues just contact us so we can analyze better the situation in your case
We remain at disposal
